V-TOL Aerospace has executed a Joint Development Agreement with the ASX listed battery manufacturer Li-S Energy and the solar cell manufacturer Halocell Energy. The aim of this agreement is to design and manufacture two (2) cutting edge multi-purpose drones:

  • Pegasus I – a small drone designed for low-level infrastructure survey. It will enable:
    • Large-area surveying and real-time AI-driven infrastructure fault detection.
    • Long-duration “dawn til dusk” (12-14 hours) communication relay operations.
  • Pegasus II – a large drone designed for high altitude, long endurance flights (weeks to months at a time). It will enable:
    • A semi-permanent communications platform that can be positioned on-demand.
    • A wide range of large-area and on-going environment monitoring capabilities for multiple kinds of imaging sensors.

“These aircraft types equipped with advanced Li-S Energy’s storage and Halocell’s next-gen solar panels will be Australian Designed & Made by V-TOL Aerospace. The geospatial and communication capabilities of a highly redundant multi-purpose network of Pegasus I & II aircraft will offer Australian industries a capability only limited by our imaginations,” says Mark Xavier CEO of V-TOL Aerospace.

“We look forward to delivering these products with our Joint Development Partners & Industry Program Participants,” he continued.

A full ASX release is available from Li-S Energy for further reading, or refer to their ASX Announcements for the latest details.

V-TOL has commenced manufacturing its own Lithium-Ion battery packs in a move towards increasing it’s quality assurance and technical sovereign capabilities. The key benefits are directly visibly for many aspects of the drone industry as a whole:

“Reliability of supply and quality of product are will be critical to ensuring the next generations of battery management systems for robotics”, says Mark Xavier, CEO V-TOL Aerospace.

Final steps of assembly for V-TOL’s prototype next-generation battery packs.

V-TOL continues its integration of advanced battery and solar chemistries to power the next generation of robots and sensors. Understanding the limitations of current technologies is the first step to optimizing the design of next generation robots. With this stage of the development cycle complete, a first-of-kind next generation drones are on the horizon.
